YM BioSciences enrolls first US patient in Phase II randomized, double-blind brain metastases trial for nimotuzumab
Date:5/27/2010

MISSISSAUGA, ON, May 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - YM BioSciences Inc. (NYSE Amex:YMI, TSX:YM), today announced that the first US patient has been enrolled in its randomized, double-blind trial evaluating nimotuzumab in patients with brain metastases from NSCLC at the Florida Cancer Institute - New Hope. This trial initiation follows recent clearance from the US FDA announced on January 26, 2010 allowing the Company to enroll patients at US clinical sites for two of its international and ongoing randomized, double-blind Phase II trials of nimotuzumab. YM anticipates that patients will also begin to be enrolled in the near future in its trial in patients with NSCLC ineligible for curative treatment and who are being treated with radiotherapy palliatively.

The current trial designs were informed by previous trials with nimotuzumab in the same indications. Previous palliative data were presented at ASCO 2008 (Abstract 3037, Bebb, G) and brain metastases randomized data at EORTC-NCI-AACR Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics, 2008 (Poster 505, Macias, A).

YM BioSciences announced on August 10, 2009 that its wholly-owned subsidiary, YM BioSciences USA Inc. (YM-USA) received a license from the US Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) that lifted the limitation on the development of nimotuzumab in the USA for patients with solid tumor cancers.

"The enrollment of the first adult US patient into our nimotuzumab trial in brain metastases from NSCLC is an important milestone for YM, allowing adult US patients the opportunity to receive nimotuzumab and a broader group of US oncologists to gain experience with it," said David Allan, Chairman and CEO of
